I am not done with offstring. I need a break. That’s the most simple way of saying things.
How long I will be out? I don’t know, maybe by Worlds, maybe by Nationals, maybe later. But there are reasons, some I am not willing to disclose due to the fact that it’s unimportant information in your lives, and some reasons that are legitimate in my eyes. I will be back though.
I need to find myself in offstring again. It’s weird. Someone also once told me that when you want something so bad, you don’t even come close to getting it when the opportunity comes. I’ve been chasing a second world championship for a while now, and while it is a VERY high goal for myself, I haven’t gotten any closer lately to reaching that.
When I stepped on to the stage at US Nationals this fall, I didn’t feel like myself anymore. My best friend has said that I have deviated from my style lately too, and I think part of that is due to the fact that I have been competing too much lately in offstring on a regular, regular basis. Being in a neckbrace for 3 and a half months didn’t help my need for finding my style again. I need time to experiment and time to feel good about everything again.
With the release of my new yo-yo, Inspire, I also want to focus more now on 1A. Time to switch things up, this time styles wise, and I feel more at ease sometime when I do 1A.
That’s all I will disclose right now.
I’ll be back when I’m back.
